Many issues affect the typical real estate transaction. Each issue commands the professional expertise of the Licensed REALTOR®. Without this professional working for you, you greatly increase the possibility that your sale or purchase will fail or place you in serious legal or financial jeopardy. Using an experienced Licensed REALTOR® can garner you substantial protection and help you control the purchasing or selling process to your advantage.
When selecting a real estate agent, look for one who is also a REALTOR®. A REALTOR® is a member of the National Association of REALTORS®. Every member must abide by a seventeen article Code of Ethics. A REALTOR® has many resources to assist you in your
search, including local and national databases. Sometimes the property you are seeking is available but not actively advertised. It will take some investigation by your agent to find all available properties.
